Before the beginning of every cricket match, I have seen each and every player from both the sides are accompanied by a child. Why exactly are they accompanied by children ? enter image description here

Certainly not a duplicate, but this Football related question could have similar reasoning. –  Nicholas V. Mar 24 '14 at 19:20
